From August Uncommon Tea

White tea with orange blossom, almond and honey

A tea that is gentle and sweet like a summer breeze and sunlight-dappled cobblestone. It’s a mild white tea with soft notes of orange blossom and honey. The floral notes of white tea are complemented by the depth of sweet almond and ephemeral orange trees in bloom. A tea for easy mornings and that much-deserved afternoon break. It’s perfect on its own or with a dessert. And it is an out-of-this-world iced tea. Its name is inspired by the graceful, warm sound of American Analog Set’s understated indie rock album of the same name.

A tea for lovers of almond and citrus flowers.

Geek Steep S1E7 – The X-Files

This is the tea that I drank while recording for this episode; I picked it because after having now watched more episodes of X-Files spanning multiple seasons, doing some background research, and thinking about it more critically I thought the name of the tea was a cute reflection of Scully and Mulder and their two different view points of the world. As I explain in this week’s episode, both of them basically are taking the stance of “knowing something by heart” – at least, in the beginning of the series anyway. They sorttttaaa find a middle-ish ground eventually. Basically, Mulder “knows by heart” that aliens/the supernatural exists while the more grounded Scully “knows by heart” that they don’t.

I actually hadn’t tried this tea before we recorded this episode so aside from feeling inspired by the name I had no clue what it would be like. I don’t feel as if the actual flavour of the tea matches the feeling of the show – but it was a delicious cuppa! Very almond forward, in a way that reminded me of an almond cookie or even just marzipan. Not overly sweet, but rich tasting and the floral orange blossom was the perfect compliment to that coating, lux tasting almond note. I’m actually a little surprised how well they complimented each other. Something about the overall flavour also made me think of Christmas cookies!? In a more loose sort of way, though.

This might be one of the better August Uncommon blends I’ve had – but I will reserve officially making that statement until I steep myself another mug and am able to taste it without the excitement of geeking out about new fandoms bleeding through into my judgement.

I’ve tried this one on two separate occasions, and I pretty strongly dislike it, despite consisting of flavors I generally love (orange blossom, honey, almond). The first time, it somehow tasted like pencil shavings. This time around, it has a strong alcohol flavor that overpowers everything else.

Usually I’m not a huge fan of white tea, as I feel it’s too subtle, causing me to oversteep it and then getting a less than desirable result. This is a flavored one, though, and that makes a big difference. The orange blossom floral note is quite pleasant, which is saying a lot because generally I’m not into floral teas. Somehow, the floral notes along with the almond flavor all wrapped up with hints of honey works really well. It’s surprisingly tasty for a white tea. It makes a very nice afternoon break cup of tea, especially with a little something sweet to snack on. This sugar addict is having a rough time giving up her sweets completely.

I had some chocolate with crisped rice before this cup and I keep getting toasted rice notes while drinking this. It’s nice, but distracting from the flavors of the tea. It smells like honeyed almonds and I get a little bit of that in the sip, but there is also a flat dough taste too. I can pick out the orange if I think hard. I’m not digging on this one so much, but I don’t often find white teas I like.

What I smell: toasted almonds, orange marmalade, barley

What I taste: orange rind

Notes: Amazing scent from the dry leaves, but quite a mellow tea when steeped. Reminds me a bit of an orange saison in tea form. Mild almond notes in the background too.

I mostly followed the instructions on this one.

What a lovely blend – all mauve pinks and moss greens with some earthy brown twigs thrown in for good measure. It reminds me of spring. The dry tea is fruity and candy sweet. One steeped, there is the slightest bitterness. I can taste the almonds. It reminds me of an herbal tea. My husband loves it so that must be right (he only drinks herbals these days). Overall, it’s good but not one I would reach for on a regular basis.

Thanks, amandastory516, for sending this one!
